Local Council Tax Reduction (formerly known as Local Council Tax Support) replaced Council Tax Benefit from 1 April 2013. Council Tax Benefit was a national scheme which helped people on a low income pay their Council Tax.
The cost of your Council Tax depends on the band of your property and the number and circumstances of the adults that live there.

Since 11 October 2017 Universal Credit has been being rolled out across Doncaster and you may have to claim Universal Credit instead of Housing Benefit for help with your rent. You will still need to make a claim for Council Tax Support if you receive, or are making a claim for, Universal Credit. The amount of Housing Benefit, if you are still eligible to claim, and Council Tax Support we will pay you depends on your circumstances.
If we pay you too much benefit, known as an overpayment, we will usually ask you to pay this back to us.
You can claim housing benefit and/or council tax support for a past period. This is called backdating.
